and john boehner in a back room, and we just sit around. >> so much of the disillusionment you hear from members who feel they're going to make a difference is exactly what you're talking about. and so much of the infighting is really not so much between the parties, while there's plenty of that, there is such a frustration between house and senate. they openly knock each other in the hallways because they operate differently. and we have this whole sort of filibuster battle going on in the senate. the rules and how do things get through. and on the house side over and over again, there's this weary sense of they've passed some things. they may not be popular everywhere, but they did pass a budget. so what they're trying to do with this no budget, no pay is to sort of turn up the screws on the senate. and so republicans hoping to not get the blame for some of these fights are trying to focus a light on the senate not passing a budget which most people don't even realize has happened. >> i get your point, though. it's got to be frustrating to see the big debates get resolved in this backr
. on the house floor today, speaker john boehner called the republican bill, "pretty simple." >> it says there should be no long term increase in the debt limit until there's a long term plan to deal with the fiscal crisis that faces our country. >> ifill: today, the house opted for short term, temporarily lifting the debt ceiling until may 19, then resetting the cap to cover any borrowing over the current limit-- $16.4 trillion. and for now, republicans will not force immediate spending cuts. the party's new strategy would achieve that goal by forcing congress to pass a budget. house budget committee chair-- and last year's vice presidential nominee-- paul ryan. >> here's the point, we have a law, it's called the budget act, it requires that congress passes a budget by april 15. all we're saying is, "congress, follow the law, do your work, budget. and the reason for this extension is so we can have the debate we need to have." >> ifill: as added incentive, the house bill says, if there is no budget, then lawmakers won't get paid. after it passed today by a bipartisan vote of 285 to 144,

engineering. so when john boehner comes together with his plan b in december, there's no unanimity or consensus in the republican party about that. i think the gop has to get its own house in order. >> they're all screwed up. that's what i'm saying. >> but they're the ones who talk about spending cuts -- >> base is going to -- >> you know the base of the republican party better than i do but i think the republican base doesn't have anywhere to go. >> they go home to sleep. they can watch tv. they can watch a sporting event. they can have a couple of beers. believe me. you're seeing the base. you ever see what they look like? i'm sorry. >> you said that. not me. >> i didn't say that. matt welch, you're kind of a neutral observer in this whole story. >> kind of. >> let me get your take on this. do you think the gop's getting the message out? >> i think it was shrewd politically what they did today. >> okay. >> they put democrats on the defensive. they shined a light on the fact they haven't passed a budget in 1,360 days and said hey if you want to be -- we don't want to be the irresp
and working together. in fact, the fiscal cliff, john boehner did something bold. he violated the rule, he put a bill on the floor that could only pass with significant democratic support and we got a good deal of republican support. so i don't make predictions, but i try to do my job. and there's a lot of republicans hearing the same thing in their districts that i heard in mine. and that is, peter, why don't you all get together and get some things done? >> congressman peter welch, let's hope a lot of members of congress hear that instruction. have a good weekend. >> thank you. >>> you know, let's talk a little bit more about the republican conference meeting in virginia. charles krauthammer wrote a piece today calling it a new strategy for the gop. the general rule is from a single house of congress you can resist but you cannot impose. aren't you failing the country, say the insurgents? the answer, the country chose obama, he gets four years. want to save the republic? win the next election. liz, if charles krauthammer recommending the gop be less intransigent, do you think inside those me
